Grounding, alignment, pulsation
The techniques in this series teach you how to ground yourself, align with your strengths, and pulsate energy to build core strength. We call this process grounding, alignment, and pulsation.
Grounding creates stability; alignment connects body, mind, and heart; pulsation revitalizes our energy and creates confidence. The combined meditations awaken higher consciousness.
With these skills, you connect with your deepest creative Self and face the difficulties of life with an accepting and courageous spirit.

Track 1. Talk on Core Strength, Calm Mind
To face life, we need a resilient inner core that can handle the difficulties and stresses of life. We need courage, flexibility, awareness, and responsiveness. You develop these skills through grounding, alignment, and pulsation meditations that utilize the internal muscles called diaphragms.
Track 2. Psychic Breath – Ujjayi
Ujjayi is a controlled yogic breathing technique that is also called throat, psychic or conscious breathing. Ujjayi is practiced by subtly tensing the throat in order to make an extremely soft sound, like the wind in a pipe. This breath carries awareness to the more subtle layers of the being. Ujjayi is used to manipulate prana.
Track 3. Develop Inner Strength – Grounding
This meditation uses various muscles of the belly to gain conscious control over energy and grounding. The first part of this meditation generates vitality and a sense of power. You then learn to generate a feeling of security and stability. This foundation practice removes tension and blockages in the body-mind.
Track 4. Connect Inner Strength with Heart – Alignment
Having developed inner strength and stability, we now align power with the heart. The aim is to generate and feel both strength and compassion at the same time. By combining the breath with dynamic visualizations, you balance strength and compassion.
Track 5. Energize and Purify Head, Heart, and Belly – Pulsation
This practice focuses on the three diaphragms of the body, the respiratory, pelvic, and cranial diaphragms. Meditation on the cranial diaphragm at the back of the head releases feelings of excessive responsibility, burden, and worry.
Track 6. Ignite the 3 Flames of Awareness – Integration
You now learn to generate a wave of pulsation at the head, heart, and belly simultaneously. You link this pulsating energy with the image of a flame at three levels. The flame in the head empowers clarity of thought and intuition. The flame in the heart generates love and compassion. The flame in the belly generates power and vitality. Holding the three flames in our awareness unleashes our creative power and inspires and empowers you to achieve something greater in your life.
